But...um...where do the posts go? Like, why can you only see the past few days' worth of posts here? Is there no "archive" in the archive? I have tried to figure this out on my own, but have failed. It seems like we should be able to scroll back to other posts, right?

Thanks everybody. I think I get it now. It's a linear site as opposed to the old deadnet central which was categorical.

One thing to do is click on your handle. It will show all the posts you have made. Search search & advanced search for old threads as well.
And no. There are posts from active handles in this forum that are over 5 years old that are archived. All of it.
And you are now on the web. Type in your handle. Surprise!

edit- Not enough posts yet, olympiaroad. Keep posting and one day, you too, will be directly on the web.

The posts don’t go away, they are still here on the archive, but require some poking about to pull up after they fall of the big board. There are many ways to search - and in doing so happen upon all sorts of past discussion. Probably the best thing is check in daily if so inclined. Other GD forum sites may offer easier access to past threads but ... damn ...
I forgot that the Dark Star was going to cut out ... I wonder if a complete version from 1/20/68 is in that there vault?
Wait, what was I saying?

You can go back 10000 post with this link

http://www.archive.org/iathreads/posts-display-new.php?limit=10000

Adjust the 10000 number on the end to go back futher. ( Maybe)

Hiya Back to you sir, I have been away from IA for a while but always find my way back. Right now March 18, 1971 cannot get deleted from my mp3 player. I am going to listen to yours on my next drive. Thanks for the suggestion. : )
